Danvers, MA —January 21, 2021— Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in
advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announced that its CCC Author Graph has been named a winner in the 2021 BIG Innovation Awards presented by the Business Intelligence Group.

Since the pandemic began, CCC has been committed to supporting the global research community’s effort to fight COVID-19. With the world focused on finding treatments and vaccines to fight the disease, science publishers have seen a massive increase in manuscript submissions to their peer reviewed journals, in some cases overwhelming editorial teams. This has resulted in a need to accelerate identification of appropriate peer reviewers for COVID related research. In response, CCC developed the Author Graph, enabling the exploration of a collection of authors and experts in coronavirus-related research and the analysis of the interconnections among them, their publications, and their areas of interest.

The CCC Author Graph is a knowledge graph that illustrates the power of visualization driven by a unique set of data. CCC’s team of data engineering experts extracted metadata from more than 130,000 articles on coronaviruses, SARS, MERS, SARS-CoV-2, and COVID-19 for its dataset representing the work of over 400,000 authors. CCC’s dataset overlaps with about 48,000 articles unique to LitCovid, and more than 74,000 articles unique to CORD-19.

“A surge in pandemic-related research created a corresponding surge in the number of journal articles in need of peer review, putting pressure on the scientific publishing ecosystem,” said Babis Marmanis, Executive Vice President & CTO, CCC. “Our investment in knowledge engineering enabled us to rapidly develop a data-driven solution — a knowledge graph of authors derived from bibliographic citations to address this market need.”

“More than ever, the global society relies on innovation to help humanity and make our lives more productive, healthy and comfortable,” said Maria Jimenez, chief operating officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are thrilled to be honoring Copyright Clearance Center as they are one of the organizations leading this charge and helping humanity progress.”

Organizations from across the globe submitted their recent innovations for consideration in the BIG Innovation Awards. Nominations were then judged by a select group of business leaders and executives who volunteer their time and expertise to score submissions.

CCC is supporting organizations with their COVID research through its COVID collection in RightFind Enterprise, COVID content in XML format for text mining, and comprehensive semantic search with RightFind Insight.

January 13, 2021 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announces IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization advancing technology for humanity, has adopted RightsLink® for Scientific Communications (RLSC) to manage institutional agreements and publication fee payments for its 200 journals and magazines.

IEEE has greatly expanded its open access publishing program and launched more than 20 new fully Open Access (OA) titles in fields such as computing, telecommunications, biomedical engineering, nanotechnology, and more, using the RLSC rules engine and data-driven workflows to scale its OA publishing models. In all, IEEE has published over 50,000 open access articles via its multiple Open Access options for authors, which include the multidisciplinary IEEE Access, top-cited hybrid journals and fully Open Access topical journals.

“IEEE’s Open Access program continues to grow and evolve,” said Karen Hawkins, IEEE Chief Marketing Officer. “IEEE continues to support open science and provide more options and choices to support the work and needs of all authors, researchers and institutions. Now with the introduction of an Open Access administration system from CCC, our institutional customers can easily track, manage, and report on the growth of their own open science initiatives.”

RLSC helps publishers, funders and institutions support a variety of agreements to accelerate open access as a means of achieving open science, including Read and Publish, Publish and Read, Membership Deals, and more. The groundbreaking launch of the RLSC Touch-Free Workflow is now the most widely adopted market solution to remove authors from the payment process, facilitate alignment with mandates such as Plan S, and lower operating costs for all parties. RLSC powers more than 40 institutional Open Access agreements for IEEE, and hundreds more across its publisher community so that participating publishers may collectively provide a consistent, streamlined experience for funders and institutions.

CCC works with publishers, funders and institutions as they seek to further simplify implementation of Open Access Institutional Agreements and accelerate deals in effect for 2021. Over 35 publishers now rely on CCC’s sophisticated agreement management solution to serve more than 600 global academic institutions, consortia, and funders – all of whom interact with one another using CCC’s platform. CCC’s Open Access Workflow Service, a comprehensive consulting practice providing strategic OA and Institutional Agreement workflow support, helps organizations deliver on each agreement’s unique needs.

“As market conditions change, we continue to evolve and advance our publishing solutions. We remain committed to working closely with funders, institutions, researchers and publishers such as IEEE to provide the needed infrastructure for achieving sustainable Open Access publishing models,” said Jamie Carmichael, Senior Director, Information and Content Solutions, CCC.

As a trusted intermediary and recognized market leader CCC encourages engagement across boundaries through an ongoing series of roundtables, panel events, webinars, podcasts and blogs. CCC is a member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA), the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP), and the Society of Scholarly Publishing (SSP).

DANVERS, Mass. – January 5, 2021 – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announces that Tom Ogier, Director of Client Engagement and Solutions, has been named a Silver Award winner for Customer Service Executive of the Year in the 2020 Best in Biz Awards.

Ogier began directing the Customer Service team at CCC 11 years ago. Since then, his group has expanded into six new countries. In addition, Ogier helped launch alternative customer support channels such as live chat and the CCC KnowledgeBase and co-led the development of a sophisticated analytics suite to enable data-driven decisions to improve capacity and address customer needs. Ogier also skillfully managed his team’s transition to work-from-home to ensure continuity of service during the pandemic. By thoughtfully investing in innovative technology and scalable solutions, he’s streamlined processes to improve and simplify the CCC customer experience.

“At CCC, putting the customer experience first is a long-held corporate value and a long-term commitment essential for customer satisfaction,” said Tracey Armstrong, President and CEO, CCC. “Tom’s unwavering focus on our customers is what makes him a great leader, and it’s why he’s played such an important role in our ‘Customer Experience First’ (CX1) initiative. We’re so pleased his work and dedication are again being recognized by the industry.”

“2020 marked the 10th annual Best in Biz Awards and – with a continuing global pandemic – was also a year like no other in the program’s history,” said Julia Zamorska, Founder and CEO of Best in Biz Awards. “Once again, this year’s winners are an inspiration, showcasing agility, resilience, innovation, growth and the drive to help others no matter what.”

Best in Biz Awards winners are determined based on scoring from independent judging panels assembled from some of the most respected newspapers, TV and radio outlets, and business, consumer, technology and trade publications in North America. Combining top editors’ and reporters’ unparalleled expertise and experience with the objectivity inherent in the journalistic ethos and further enhanced by the breadth and variety of outlets represented on the panel, Best in Biz Awards is uniquely able to determine the best of the best from among hundreds of entries. The 2020 judging panel included, among others, writers from Barron’s, USA Today, Consumer Affairs, Healthcare Innovation News and Wired.

Earlier this year, CCC won a Bronze award for Customer Service Department of the Year in the Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service. CCC was also recognized as a Silver winner in the Customer Service Department of the Year category in the 2019 Best in Biz Awards.

December 15, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announces the results of a new “Information Seeking and Consumption Study” by Outsell, Inc., the voice of the data, information and analytics economy.

Outsell regularly conducts quantitative studies on behalf of CCC which provide cumulative insights about how copyrighted content is used and shared in the workplace. According to results from the 2020 study, 34% of respondents working remotely reported an increase in the frequency of sharing content during the pandemic. Of those, 63% in executive roles said they are sharing more often now, compared to 27% of middle managers and 22% of individual contributors. Nearly half of study respondents (47%) are either unaware of copyright policy or unsure of its details.

“Organizations around the world have made huge strides during this time to enable remote teams to collaborate more easily,” said Tracey Armstrong, President and CEO, CCC. “This study reaffirms the importance of a clear copyright policy and licensing to support a streamlined content workflow.”

“Outsell’s ongoing analysis of the market indicates this isn’t a problem that’s going away,” said Ned May, VP Analytic Operations, Outsell. “The pandemic triggered permanent changes to where and how knowledge workers engage with their work and organizations need to start solving for these new challenges now.”

CCC provides a wide range of resources to help organizations support the needs of information users at all levels of the company. The Annual Copyright License (ACL) is a trusted solution that complements publisher agreements and subscriptions by providing a consistent set of reuse rights across a broad repertory of titles which helps simplify copyright compliance and drives innovation. To support unique licensing needs around the globe, CCC offers the Multinational Copyright License, the VG WORT Digital Copyright License, and the CLA & CCC Joint Multinational Copyright License.

Methodology
Outsell designed the questionnaire with input and final approval from CCC. The final survey instrument required respondents to spend no more than 15 minutes to complete and contained no more than 20 screens of questions. Topics in the questionnaire covered the following areas: demographics; information-seeking behaviors; content access and consumption; copyright awareness; sharing habits and behaviors; and changes in behavior due to pandemic conditions. The study surveyed knowledge workers at companies with global headquarters in the following countries: United States, Japan, Germany, France, South Korea, United Kingdom, Denmark, Switzerland, The Netherlands, and India. The study focused on the following verticals: Chemicals and Plastics, Computers and Electronic Components, Consulting and Professional Services, Electric and Gas Utilities, Finance / Insurance, Law Firms, Leisure and Travel, Life Sciences (including Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology, Medical Devices, and Scientific Equipment), Oil and Gas Extraction (Exploration, Drilling, Production, and Refining), Transportation and Automotive, Wholesale / Retail.

The collection now includes more than 145,000 articles and preprints. The CCC team is also continuing to highlight data creators and data aggregators who are contributing to the common good by providing visualizations, dashboards, and access to datasets related to COVID-19 and the novel coronavirus causing it.

Danvers, Mass. – November 17, 2020 – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, has been named as one of the 2020 Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts by the Boston Globe Magazine and The Commonwealth Institute (TCI), a Boston-based nonprofit that supports female business leaders. This year, CCC ranked #17, up from #23 in 2019.

Now in its 20th year, the list recognizes the most noteworthy companies and nonprofits in Massachusetts with women CEOs. This year’s edition includes leaders of health care companies, retail giants, construction heavyweights, financial institutions, nonprofits and many more.

“We are honored to be included in this list of remarkable women-led companies,” said Tracey Armstrong, President and CEO, CCC. “We’ve made tremendous strides over the years in supporting the careers of women leaders at CCC by giving them opportunities to succeed, including having them own revenue, lead our go-to-market strategy, serve as managing directors of multiple business units, direct our marketing, HR and multiple operations functions, and serve in senior positions on our IT and engineering teams. As we continue on our diversity, equity and inclusion journey, we are committed to continue work to foster growth and inspire success among all of our team members.”

Armstrong has been President and CEO of CCC since July 2007. She brings over 30 years of experience in rights management, helping the company transform from a traditional copyright licensing agent to one offering global technological solutions for text and data mining and content management to meet the needs of today’s digital publishing and corporate world. Armstrong is actively involved in PublisHer, an industry-led movement to tackle the publishing industry’s long-standing gender diversity and inclusion challenges. She also has strong ties to the region and is actively involved in the community, serving on the Board of Harborlight Community Partners to help provide affordable housing across Southern Essex County. Armstrong is active in local politics and mentors young women in the Northeastern MBA program, where she received her master’s degree.

The rankings for the Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts are based on an examination of each organization’s revenue or operating budget and other variables, including the number of full-time employees in the state, workplace and management diversity initiatives and innovative projects. TCI then ranks organizations according to its own formula. This year’s Top 100 ranked list appeared in the November 8th Women and Power edition of the Globe Magazine.

October 6, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, has once again partnered with The Frankfurt Book Fair to spotlight innovation in global publishing.

The global pandemic has dramatically accelerated the shift to digital media across the globe. In the virtual environment where distance is now immaterial, humanity has both converged and been scattered. The essential work of publishing – sharing knowledge and enabling expressions – has never been more important.

When CCC invited senior policy makers, scholarly and society publishers, funders, institutions and researchers to meet in London last year, participants explored how best to advance scholarly research and improve the scientific publishing ecosystem. And while market disruptions, expected and unexpected, are always a factor in scientific publishing, the COVID-19 pandemic quickly became the catalyst to accelerate the industry’s pursuit of open science, business model evolution, and digital transformation. Panelists will share data about the coronavirus disruption to STEM publishing across key points in the ecosystem – how it drives their investments, influences their Transformative Agreement deals, and shapes the innovations they hope to bring to market. Attendees will learn how stakeholders have stepped up to meet the rigorous expectations of researchers worldwide in 2020.

• Tatiana Khayrullina, Director, Lead Analyst, Scientific and Technical Solutions, Outsell, Inc.

October 1, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announced that it has been named a Stevie® Award winner in the category of Best New Employee Onboarding, in the annual Stevie Awards for Great Employers.

Over the past several years, CCC has enhanced its employee onboarding experience, creating a scalable, replicable and engaging experience from talent acquisition throughout an employee’s tenure. As a result, the company continues to see a low turnover rate and high satisfaction scoring from employees after onboarding.

“Our team spends a considerable amount of time attracting the very best talent,” said Michele Nivens, Vice President, Human Resources, CCC. “Once a new hire joins, this effort continues. As the team’s dedication and commitment to an effective and engaging onboarding experience not only helps our new colleagues onboard faster, but it improves the work experience for all CCC employees.”

The Onboarding Program is part of CCC’s strategic initiative to support employees working around the globe throughout their experience with the company. This important initiative includes an annual Demo Days program, a Summer Sessions skillbuilding curriculum, and access to a comprehensive learning portal with more than 100 courses, videos and learning materials.

More than 90 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners. Comments from judges on CCC’s onboarding program success included:

• “CCC has come a long way in its new hire orientation program…to a comprehensive, well-thought out program.”
• “Seemingly simple strategy but I suspect not commonplace in the industry and will likely lead to happier employees in the long run.”
• “Your change in the entire Employee Onboarding experience is very positive and something to be proud of.”

“In the fifth edition of the Stevie Awards for Great Employers, the judges were impressed by the Stevie winners who – during the crises we’ve confronted this year – continue to dedicate each day to making the lives of their employees and teams better through training, software, work-from-home plans, and more. We are pleased to celebrate them in 2020 and look forward to what they will accomplish in 2021,” said Maggie Gallagher, President, Stevie Awards.

The Stevie Awards for Great Employers recognize the world’s best employers and the human resources professionals, teams, achievements and HR-related products and suppliers who help to create and drive great places to work. The winners will be announced at a virtual awards ceremony on November 5.

September 22, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, will present a virtual Town Hall on Tuesday, 29 September at 10:00 EDT/15:00 BST/16:00 CEST, bringing together publishing leaders and education solutions providers to share their lesson plans for digital transformation in a COVID-19 world.

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic this spring, schools across the US were closed suddenly and instruction shifted to a virtual model for millions of students. The spotlight fell on educational technology and licensing to address the new challenges as faculty and staff realized that success in this new model required access to content both in print and online formats.

The disruption caused by COVID-19 will have long-lasting repercussions beyond this school year. Learning will continue to be widely varied, with schools delivering a mix of in-person, remote and hybrid learning in order to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus while enhancing student outcomes and improving accessibility.

“The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is widespread, but is especially crippling to the academic community,” said Emily Sheahan, Vice President & Managing Director, CCC. “Schools are struggling with exactly how to begin the new academic year given conflicting pressure from scientists, government, community leaders, families, staff, unions, faculty and students. They need flexible, creative solutions that allow students, families and teachers to adapt to changing requirements with minimal interruption to the learning experience.”

Industry experts participating in the virtual Town Hall include:

• Karthik Krishnan, CEO, Britannica Group
• Beth Miller, Chief Knowledge Officer, EL Education, Inc.
• Paul Randall, Solutions Product Marketing Manager, HP
• Andrew Campana, Director, Business Development, CCC

CCC recently hosted virtual Town Halls on ‘Thinking Beyond the Crisis: Building Digital Resiliency’ and ‘Transformative Agreements: How Innovation is Answering the Open Access Challenge.’
